Beautiful & haunting

Hooked on Funk

Incredibly beautiful version of the Sam Cooke classic. McAteer (the 'female Tom Waits') is breathy and haunting, and partner Bjorn Dahlberg's string quartet arrangement is equally breathtaking. Amazing how songs can take on new meanings...this was recorded for NACOA, a charity who help children of alcoholics....the civil rights context of the original is effortlessly displaced by the alienation of a child with addictive parents. Buy it for NACOA, to hear McAteer's rising talent, and to glimpse the beauty of the vulnerable as never before
